The IEEE Award for Continuing and Significant Contributions in the Field of Large Scale Applied Superconductivity to be presented to Luca Bottura

The IEEE Award for Continuing and Significant Contributions in the Field of Large Scale Applied Superconductivity to be presented to Luca Bottura

The Council on Superconductivity is pleased to announce the selection of Dr. Luca Bottura of CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, to receive the IEEE Award for Continuing and Significant Contributions in the Field of Applied Superconductivity.  This IEEE Award recognizes a career of meritorious achievements and outstanding technical contributions by a living individual in the field of applied superconductivity.

The Award will be presented to Dr. Bottura during the European Conference on Applied Superconductivity to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, from the 17th through the 21st of September 2017.   Dr. Bottura will receive a plaque, an inscribed medallion, and a cash award of US$ 5,000.

 

The Award plaque will be inscribed with the following citation:

For continuing and significant contributions in the field of applied superconductivity, in particular:   

  • For developing computer codes for the design and analysis of operating margin, stability and quench of cable-in-conduit superconductors,
  • For conducting the field measurement of the LHC superconducting magnets, and developing a parametric field model for the LHC operation,
  • For leading the development of advanced superconducting magnets for future accelerator projects, and
  • For promoting superconducting technology internationally through technical editorship, scientific networking, and organization of scientific events.
